On Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize

October 10, 2009 | By | Reply More

When Norway’s Nobel Committee awarded its Peace Prize to Barack Obama, they hit America’s right-wing zealots with egg in the face. Here’s how Steven Weber put it at Huffpo:

As the predictable mobs of crypto-racist/sexually repressed obstructionists coagulate around the recipient, the Norwegian Nobel committee has acted unilaterally and struck a blow for the rest of humanity. The big tent Republicon party, which shelters everyone from flat-earthers to Taitz birthers, from gun-toters to Swift Boaters, in other words every scrap of social flotsam which identifies with the right’s disdain for All Things Other, is coming away from its stakes.
